At design time put a picture box say it pic(0). There, load another array of controls say but(0).
Define all your arrays of controls with a maximum dimension. Be careful, cause you cannot delete a position from a control array, if you use unload pic(i) it will remain a gap in the array.
 Use Load pic(i) for the container, and then Load but(i) for the components you want to load.
 To determin if a control is loaded or not use the VarType function (if, say pic(1) is loaded, then VarType(pic(1))<>9, so this is the condition

Dynamically load the buttons, then set them into the desired containers:

' Load an OK and Cancel button into ten pictureboxes
for i=1 to 10
Load cmdOK(i)
Set cmdOK(i).Container = picSomething(i)
cmdOK(i).move 0,100

Load cmdCancel(i)
Set cmdCancel(i).Container = picSomething(i)
cmdCancel(i).move 0,500
next i
